Question about Toshiba 56HM195 56" Projection HDTV
I have a brand new toshiba 56hm195 and all pictures look great and tv works wonderful, except i'm having an issue when i turn the set on. if i turn the tv on when it's connected to the cable box, the picture is all redish and bluish and totally distorted. it's like 2 smaller images of the same channel distorted together with small scanlines. i have to then change the input source to another source and then go back to the cable source and it's fixed every time. it doesn't happen every time i turn the tv on. it's about 60% of the time. it's highly annoying. cable company has replaced the box but doesn't seem to know what it is. i can't figure out if it's the tv, the cable box, the signal, the cables, etc.? the dvd player and other input sources all work perfectly, so it's just with the cable box. anyone see this before??
I have direct TV and I have the same problem also. It happens about 1 ot of 8 times. All I do is turn off the satellite receiver for a few seconds and turn it back on while the TV is left on. It works everytime. Don't drive yourself crazy with repairs and the like. It is just one of those things.

When you say brand new, just how new is it? Your unit could be covered by the warranty. Certainly something worth checking into. If it works fine on all inputs except cable and the cable box has been changed your problem is probably in the digital receiver in the TV. This is something you will need a qualified repair tech to look at but should not be an expensive fix (compared to the cost of the unit). First make sure it is not covered under warranty. Free is still better than having to pay! Good luck.
